Sunflower Seed Butter is one of the most versatile ingredients to have in your pantry, but it's anything but plain. Ours is lightly sweetened with Vermont Maple Sugar to give it a warmth and depth you just don't get with the roasted seeds alone. You can use it just ike you would use a nut butter -- in a Seed Butter & Jelly sandwich, in a smoothie, on yogurt, and even on ice cream. But you can also use it in these more inventive ways, like whipping it into a creamy sauce, baking it into cookies, or whisking it into soup! Yeah... soup.
Nicole's Butternut Squash Soup
Our founder Nicole's recipe for butternut squash soup will probably be the last one you'll ever have to google. Our Sunflower Seed Butter acts as a dairy-replacement thickener to make it thick and creamy and also adds protein, iron, and healthy unsaturated fats. Get your soup spoons ready!
Like any parent, we don’t choose favorites - we love all our sauces equally. But if we were forced to choose… we’d probably go with this maple mustard. Salty, sweet, and punchy. Thick, smooth, and spreadable. Maple mustard: you have our hearts and a reserved place in our fridge forever, especially when accompanied by a large soft pretzel and ice-cold Kolsch. Prost!
Maple Mango Smoothie
Let this smoothie transport you to a tropical beach somewhere. Imagine yourself lounging in a chair or sprawled on a towel, soaking up the rays and wiggling your toes in the sand. Then take a sip of this smoothie, and exhale.
We’ve thrown everything but the kitchen sink into our Seed Butter-based barbecue sauce for a thick, slightly sweetened, spicy, and tangy glaze for your next backyard cookout.
Maple Glazed Carrots
What is more satisfying than a maple glaze over roasted carrots as the leaves start to change and the temperature get cooler? That's right, pretty much nothing.
Sunflower Seed Butter Cookies
Our easy, allergy-friendly cookie recipe can be made with any flavor of seed butter, but plain ol' Sunflower is as classic as it gets. When they come out of the oven, they almost have the texture and taste of a peanut butter cookie, but without the nut -- crispy on the edges, chewy in the middle, and perfect for everyone.
Maple Fruit Dip
We love fresh fruit on its own, don’t get us wrong, but this light, creamy yogurt-based maple fruit dip complements crispy, crunchy apples and pears so well that we had to share -- though you may not want to once you make it.
Maple Glazed Apple Cider Donuts
You know how we said earlier that there's nothing more satisfying than roasted carrots with a maple glaze in the fall? Yeah, well we uhh... we take it back. Because how can you top donuts?
Honestly, you don't even need a recipe. Just grab a spoon (or apple slice) and have at it straight out of the jar.
